America

Lyrics

I was America this morning driving just to drive no destination in mind just spinning my wheels like I said I was America this morning I was America this morning I was America an overturned truck mess slowed up the highway like for a movie a drive-in movie or a circus sideshow we all waited for our turn to gawk four mexican bodies laid out like battle casualties a fireman on one knee with hands filled with frightened bloody Mexican face I rolled by I rolled by eating my egg mcmuffin and I didn’t care for those few moments I let Rome burn getting fatter and uncaring I was America.
